Remember, the free in "Free Software" means freedom, you still may have to pay for it.

When I asked him, "Chacha, aap yahan bina ghar ke kaise rehte hain?" (How do you live here without a home?)
He smiled and said, "Nizamuddin ke darbar me beghar kaun hota hai!!" (How can one be homeless in the Grace of Nizamuddin!)

I want Linux to be accessible. The idea that Linux is for people who understand computers and software is elitist and pushes most people away and back into the arms of Microsoft, Apple, and Google, who are more than happy to make things easy and convenient.

Further, Linux should be accessible to people who are blind, or have difficulty typing, or any other thing that makes using a computer more difficult.

We're moving away from security as an afterthought, but accessibility? Too hard, I guess.

Are you new to #Linux? Or do you want to learn the command line tools we use everyday on Linux? This book will help you in learning

want to know what advantages Signal has over Whatsapp?

What are onions and what do they have to do with technology?

Want to know the daily habits to maintain digital hygiene (so that you stay secure?)

have questions about how to navigate today’s internet without being stripped of your privacy?

then ping @kushal with your questions using the hashtag and he will answer a bunch of them at 8pm IST, tomorrow (the 13th of Nov.)

I will doing the first session of digital security office hour tomorrow 13th November, at 8PM IST. Feel free to ask questions mentioning me and with #securityofficehour hashtag. I will collect those and answer over video + here. Please also boost this toot for reach.

hopefully if rich folks make a ruckus, it’ll get Apple’s attention.

I’d find it really hard to believe Apple would do any thing if regular ole, middle class Jane Doe said something like this :)

Curiosity, everyone’s favorite Mars rover, works with two BAE RAD750 processors clocked at up to 200MHz. It has 256MB of RAM and 2GB of SSD. As we near 2020, the RAD750 stands as the current state-of-the-art, single-core space-grade processor. It’s the best we can send on deep space missions today.

Still, the price tag on the RAD750 is around $200k. Why not just throw an iPhone in there and call it a day?

If you are accessing Mastodon over a browser on your computer, why don't you give @torproject browser a try. It will increase your privacy a few fold.

links galore, to explore!

Just over a week left to get The Linux and BSD Bookshelf @Humble bundle by @nostarch (with The Book of PF by yours truly and @mwlauthor's Absolute OpenBSD + lots of other goodies in it)

An AI is only as good as the models you build for it.
Recognising bias should be step one, no?
